Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Unconnected areas / one side only / progressive - all suggest possible brain or spinal cord involvement.
Your friend may be right / he should be seen by a neurologist / MRI may be needed...

There could be other explanations, like anxiety - which however ought to be an exclusion diagnosis...
Early diagnosis / time is important in many situations...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
